Are you completely reactive and block as many addresses as possible or null0 traffic to the effected host until it stops or do you block certain ports to prevent them.  What’s the best way people are dealing with them?

#1: Ensure your network is BCP38 compliant.

Hard to complain about others attacking you when you are not clear. And if you do not block source-address spoofing, you are not clean.

As for the rest, I'll let others with more recent experience explain what they do.
